My first time to this venue and it was on point. Beautiful 'standing' area where we sat down on the grass as did everyone else there, eating and drinking whilst listening to the back up bands before Lionel came on. It was a fabulous evening. Then everyone did stand for Lionel and what a performance, sooo worth it!
Annoying point of the night. Wanted a bottle of wine, however they pour the whole bottle into 2 large cups.. They need to rethink this as takes the enjoyment out of wine being poured into huge large beer type cups..

In saying that, I would definitely return to this venue. Great central location too.

The organisation at RedFest was horrendous. Not enough security, two hour queue to enter and generally felt unsafe. I'd reccomend getting there a good few hours before anybody you want to see!

Indside is nice. Good views because of the sloped hills. 50AED a beer is a little steep though...

I went with my family for Alicia Keys and the venue was absolutely amazing. A park in the city with towers in the backdrop!

Loads of RTA parking around the site and because it's set up 'short and wide' there is a great view of the stage from pretty much anywhere.

Toilets were clean and no queues but the bar and food service was a bit slow.

Watched the Snow Patrol gig last night, they were excellent, however...
First of all, the organisers need to be taken out and shot. If they had actually dreamed up a more convoluted system to even get inti the venue, I very much doubt they would have managed it.
Once inside you are invited to buy the drinks tickets, 50 Aed for a beer, which led to long queues. Once you have the tickets, you then join another long queue to get your long awaited and pricy drink. Only to find at the bar that you can pay by credit card, you don’t need the buy the ticket!
And as good as the band were, it was a relatively short show, just over an hour, maybe slightly longer.
The queue to get in the first place reminded me that the organisers could not run a bath, and I had forgotten to never venture back to these shows.
And for my last gripe, if Snow Patrol, Jamoriquai or Alici Keys are evenly remotely connected to Jazz music, I am Charlie Chan!

We went here for the Backstreet boys concert. The whole security and the crowd management was very well done. The food stalls were a bit on the steep side but I guess that is expected. We were quite far from the main stage, but they did have ample of the screens all over the place which showed the event! Its a good place to go for a concert o.

Let me start by stating that we had a great time at this venue for the Backstreet Boys concert. We had golden circle tickets and had a blast; however, the one bitter pill to swallow was that the concession tried, on two separate occasions, to rip me off by giving incorrect change. The first time was AED 50 and I laughed it off and politely said just be more careful when counting the change. The second time, same guy, was for AED 130 and when I said something he just laughed. I asked to talk to a manager/supervisor but was whisked away with smiles and sorries. I few this was deliberate in an effort to take advantage of people that are having a good time. It’s frustrating that when I asked for the supervisor I was just ushered away making me think that many of them are in on this little scam.

Such a shame that this put a damper on what was otherwise a great evening.

We went to the Dubai Jazz Festival this weekend, to enjoy the John Legend Concert at the Dubai Media City Amphitheater. It was out first time at this venue, and I was impressed of the overall concept and how well organized everything is. The venue is shaped like an Amphitheater (no surprise here), making it very convenient to watch your concert from every angle, and with excellent sound from anywhere. Furthermore, the venue itself offers a just a very laid back atmosphere with bars, different promotion stands, artists selling their pieces on the side, etc.. All in all, a very laid back and chilled out experience and probably the place to go for any concert in Dubai!

The Media City Amphitheatre is a great venue for outdoor concerts in Dubai during winter. I have been there for Red Fest DXB 2018, Enrique Iglesias in 2017 and the Oktoberfest in 2017 and the venue was perfect for all. The place is very accessible via metro and taxis and in the city area itself, so finding transport after events is not a hassle.

Attended a Concert for a famous Egyptian singer (Amr Diab), the concert was crowded but the access and egress to the venue were well control and organized that I could barely feel the crowd. The amphitheater is very convenient during the chilly winter evenings of Dubai. Toilets and dining options were available inside the Park.
Parking may be challenging but parting spaces are available at the proximity of the amphitheater (for instance you can pay to park at any of the hotels located at the proximity of amphitheater or Park at the AUD parking which is 5 min walking distance from the amphitheater).
Taking a taxi or Uber after a concert is not difficult but waiting time of 10 minutes should be expected.
Venue is suitable for your kids.

This venue is a decent size to hold concerts and such but unless there is an event going on, there is mostly nothing happening here.
